Certain occupations that Quebec employers hire for are exempt from the requirement to advertise the position for which they are hiring foreign workers.
Typically, the process for temporarily hiring a foreign national to work in Canada involves the submission of a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). LMIAs are documents that employers seek from the government to verify that hiring a foreign national will have either a neutral or positive impact on the Canadian labour market.
Part of this process is ensuring that no Canadians are passed up for the position in favour of a foreign national and that the hired temporary worker will receive a salary and benefits.
Note: The salary and benefits earned by the foreign national must meet federal and provincial standards
